I am going to be taking a break from my phone, apps, etc. I'm mentally struggling and need to take some time to heal. Not sure when I'll be back on but I'll make sure to send out my book club books even if I do not get a chance to read them. I will try my best to get them read but my mental and physical health is my top priority for right now! Hope you all are in a good place, thriving and taking time out for what you love!

I have not picked this book up since February I think hahaha! Talk about procrastinating.....👻 I had the urge to pick it up again after only reading like 1/4 of it and wow it just sucked me all the way back into the world of paranormals,, I'll be very happy once I finish it because I hate to start something and not finish! It's a great Series and I saw on Amazon my husband already pre-ordered me the next one 🤩💖

KristiAhlers Yeah this series has gone no where fast. Which saddens me as I enjoyed the first two books. 2w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book was the best book I've read thus far for 2022! Reading the Authors Note was absolutely heartbreaking because even though this book was Fantasy it is truly reality for so many in this world who suffer daily from police brutality and racism.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I did not expect to pick this book up today, finish reading it in a couple of hours, or love it as much as I did! Talk about a culture shock, I could not imagine living in Jeetas household and enduring the relationship she has with her mother. Her mother is outright old fashioned and not open to breaking tradition. Jeeta is so bold and courageous and it's survival for her in a way she soon learns! I really enjoyed this book so very much

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This may very well be my new favorite book of this year...and possible favorite series?! We will have to see. I am so stoked to read all of the upcoming books and thankfully I've got the second one ready to be read. Cinder is soooo likeable and I just love how Marissa Meyer made this retelling so unique. Pure genius in my opinion 💜 also Iko was a favorite side character!

ShelleyBooksie Is this a graphic novel? 2mo
KateReadsYA @ShelleyBooksie no this is just fan art I found on pinterest but oh it totally should come out with graphic novels and a TV series 🥰 p.s. I sent you a letter in the mail-i know i am so late, sorry hahaha 2mo
